J/AJ/129/2119       Properties for 165 dwarf galaxies          (Spekkens+, 2005)

The cusp/core problem in galactic halos: long-slit spectra for a large dwarf galaxy sample. Spekkens K., Giovanelli R., Haynes M.P. <Astron. J., 129, 2119-2137 (2005)> =2005AJ....129.2119S
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, spectra ; Radial velocities ; Rotational velocities Keywords: dark matter - galaxies: dwarf - galaxies: halos - galaxies: kinematics and dynamics - galaxies: structure Abstract: We derive inner dark matter halo density profiles for a sample of 165 low-mass galaxies using rotation curves obtained from high-quality, long-slit optical spectra assuming minimal disks and spherical symmetry.

Note (1): Uppsala General Catalogue (Nilson 1973, Cat. VII/26) number where available, or else our private Arecibo General Catalogue database number. Note (2): Measured from best-fit URC curve to long-slit data. See section 3. Note (3): Computed from VSol and (RA, Dec) using the multi-attractor flow model of Tonry et al. 2000ApJ...530..625T, with H0=70km/s/Mpc. Note (4): Extrapolated to 8 optical scale-lengths (Haynes et al. 1999AJ....117.1668H). Note (5): Radius encompassing 83% of the total I-band light (Haynes et al. 1999AJ....117.1668H). Note (6): Corrected for inclination (Haynes et al. 1999AJ....117.1668H). Note (7): Obtained from the I-band disk ellipticity (Haynes et al. 1999AJ....117.1668H) assuming an intrinsic disk axial ratio of 0.2. Note (8): Taken as the velocity of the best-fit polyex curve at Radopt; see the "Note (9)" section below and Eq.(2) of paper. Note (9): the polyex relates the rotation curve (RC) as (Eq. 2): V(r) = Vo (1 - exp(-r/rpe)) (1 + beta r / rpe) Note (10): the inner profile (for low values of r) define the density profile ρ(r) ∝ r-alpha
